Curfew, APL, Emmanuel Macron’s comments on 5G … They answer questions from Marc Fauvelle and Salhia Brakhlia.
Curfew: what status for the homeless?
This Friday evening, October 16 at midnight, a curfew begins in Île-de-France and in eight metropolitan areas, which runs from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. “If we don’t have a home, how do we do it?”, asks Christophe Robert. “We spoke about it yesterday to Emmanuelle Wargon, the Minister of Housing, so that emergency meetings can be set up this weekend to coordinate all the actors at the local level to find the appropriate responses.”
The general delegate of the Abbé Pierre Foundation warns against “a reduction in the sails on food distributions, on daytime reception responses, we must learn the lessons of March to be able to offer a solution to everyone in emergency accommodation, housing, care . “
APL: “total confusion at the highest point of the state”
Emmanuel Macron announced Wednesday, October 14 exceptional aid of 150 euros, and 100 euros more per child for beneficiaries of the active solidarity income (RSA) and personalized housing assistance (APL). Finally, beneficiaries of APL will only receive 100 euros per child. Consequence, the under 25s who do not have access to RSA will be very few to receive this assistance. For Christophe Robert, it is a “total confusion at the top of the state”.
“That young people between the ages of 18 and 25 can access RSA, that seems fundamental to us”, adds Nicolas Hulot. “The situation we are facing is not going to end tomorrow morning. So I think access for young people is very important for RSA.”
5G: “The Amish of my Amish are my Amish”
Emmanuel Macron assured last month that France would “take the 5G turn”, ironically about those who would prefer “the Amish model” and the “return to the oil lamp”. “I took the liberty of sending a short text to the president saying: ‘Attention, the Amish of my Amish are my Amish’, because I did indeed feel concerned.”, reacts Nicolas Hulot, who judges these words “unnecessary” and “unjust”.
“Making fun of ecology or environmentalists is still ignoring that if we had listened to them for a long time and if we had reacted for a long time, we would be in a situation that would be much less complex, tragic and penalizing” , underlines the President of the Nicolas Hulot Foundation.
